from an obama/clinton story on talking points memo: “Blocking revotes in MI and Fla.” Lol! I just love this mindless talking point. Where did he acquire the power to stop the Michigan and Florida legislatures from passing laws and/or the state parties from submitting workable delegate selection plans to the DNC?

your creation museum report

13-Nov-07

via daring fireball, a tour of the creation museum, from just the right perspective. here’s a sample: Let me say this much: I have to admit admiration for the pure balls-out, high-octane creationism that’s on offer here.

Here’s a reprint of a post I put up on chowhound.com: We gave the Riverdale Garden a test run a couple of weeks ago.

Thank jeebus that the medialoper tried wal-mart’s new download service, so i didn’t have to. so it’s not really my afternoon, as my post’s title might indicate. it’s the medialoper’s. a typical snark-filled excerpt: Eventually I give up searching for music and decide to browse by genre.

The Internet Has Always Had Loud Dumb People…but I’ve never seen anything quite as bad as the people who comment on Youtube videos.

“God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.” but then who made steve? here’s the brilliant answer an excerpt: This oft-quoted text presents a mystery.

think your job is boring? think again. from the article: Ryan H was pretty excited to start his new job as a developer. But his excitement quickly faded after he started.
